Bi-Weekly Dinner Series Featuring Local Wine Personalities

Our Thursdays @The Tasting Table dinner series is our chance to introduce you to some of the fascinating people who we cross paths with while exploring the region’s food and wine. We invite them into our open kitchen to cook, or into our tasting room to pour and discuss their wines.

Our guest hosts can include chefs, winemakers, authors, sommeliers, photographers, food enthusiasts, or others who have something to share. It’s a unique opportunity to learn about Hungarian wine and food from local experts.

These casual evenings have somewhat of a speakeasy vibe, with everyone gathering around big communal tables and food served family-style. Wine is poured generously, and the events are all about enjoying great food and wine in the company of people who like to share their passions.

These dinners tend to sell out quickly … book in advance!

Upcoming WInemaker Dinners

Thursday July 4
Éva Cartwright (Somló Region)

Éva Cartwright is the force behind the Somlói Borok Boltja, a shop with a beautiful location on Somló hill, which singularly focuses on the wines of this small volcanic region. She has poured all of her passion for this region into her Somló project, and has made wines from Somló accessible to a wider audience. The shop has become a central point in Somló, bringing the region’s winemakers together and also serving as a place where visitors can drop in and taste many of the region’s wines (as most wineries are only open by appointment on weekends). Born and raised on this volcano, Cartwright went on to live in London for many years, which inspired her to bring Somló’s wines to the UK. Through her #govolcanic project she has gotten Somló wines (and wines from other Hungarian volcanic regions) listed on the menus of many of London’s Michelin starred restaurants. Cartwright’s Somló shop stocks every single wine made in the region. She’ll bring six of them to taste while she tells stories about this unique region which has so inspired her.

THE MENU:
Cold fruit soup with crispy mangalica bacon
Pike perch “Kárpáthy” style
Cheesecake with raspberries

THE WINE:
6 wines from Somló
